From Kristians background living and studying in Japan, he aims to combine Japanese aesthetics with Danish Design, to achieve a characteristic twist to simplicity itself. Most of all searching for the small, new and original detail, which lifts the design, by adding a specific signature. By working with arts and sculptures, the process expands in new and exciting ways, with the goal of creating characteristic, functional and timeless design.
From Tommys background in fashion, spending years analyzing and picking future trends, amongst working with color shades and structures of materials, he aims to combine details and references from different historical design periods, and put them together in new ways to create fresh and original design concepts. All designs are based on the same approach of creating design in different layers, starting from scratch to a full storytelling of each design collection.
